I think this is the new coach of the Zim Ladies' Hockey team, Gus McVey, Zimbabwe-born and a former cricketer, according to this piece of news.

Yup, the famous Gus Mackay, whom this and many other newspapers have referred to as "McVey". He is indeed the new national women's hockey team coach! He has had a splendidly varied coaching career, after his brief comical stint as an ODI team member for Zim, coaching cricket, rugby teams and now into hockey.

Nah, they can't be the same person, Crimson; although Gus Mackay seems to be free, having stepped down as CEO of Worcester Warriors two weeks ago.

But this McVey guy in the article has been living in Devon for 26 years ... and he already coached the Zim Ladies back in August 2018 according to other newspaper reports.

They're both bald, though :)

:o :o :o

I cannot believe they are two different people!!!

So, why does this McVey guy not have a cricinfo page? Oh probably he never played any serious cricket before he moved to the UK where he played some club cricket by the looks of it... I still can't believe these are two different people, but you are right!

The question still is perfectly valid as he is a former cricketer with Zim origins :D

May be ZIMDOGGY could throw some light on his favorite player :)
